I’ve been wrong, a lot. And that includes how I’ve been approaching this fashion blog. I’ve been using the theory that you should dress based on what you want to make happen. Which, if you have a big date or a job interview, still holds true. But trying to control everything doesn’t make allowances for being surprised or lucky. They say that you never know in advance when the big moments are going to happen, so I’m adding a new approach. Love what you wear every day, no matter how ordinary, as though it is going to be the biggest day of your life. Because it just might be. For example I had no particular plan in mind when I choose this sweet, pink halter dress with it’s romantically draping skirt. I just wanted to give myself a boost, and pink has always been my favorite color. I complemented it with these charming, designer, white satin heels with a floral T-strap design. Altogether a lovely, feminine look that instantly makes you feel special no matter how ordinary you day turns out to be. And if it’s not ordinary? You’ll be happy you made the effort.
So it finally happened! Last night was Caroline’s engagement party and it was spectacular. Most brides-to-be would be home in bed, sleeping off all the excitement, but not Caroline. She not only managed to visit the office today, but look bright and fresh while doing it, an almost impossible feat. It almost makes it hard to like her. But here she is, sunny and feminine, in a green and white, full skirted, Jacquard dress with a bold, mint green statement necklace and an adorable, matching, mint designer bag with a large decorative bow. Not many women can always dress to impress, but Caroline clearly has an image to maintain and she does a fabulous job!
Our latest client, Caroline Lee, has proven to be a very determined and particular woman who knows exactly what she wants and how she wants it. I also think this is pretty evident in the way she puts together an outfit, down to the last color-coordinated detail. Today she started with a very posh set of matching separates. I have to admit it’s clever, since wearing a patterned skirt and top has the uniformity of a dress, but allows for more flexibility with the fit, especially if you have curves. The pastel color blocking gives plenty of choices when accessorizing, and I have a feeling Caroline prefers to have a lot of options available to her. This time around, she chose a shiny, gold and pink statement necklace, tall nude heels, and this uber feminine, designer mint purse. It’s beautifully structured with an optional strap, decorated with the whimsical charm of an oversize bow, and twinkling in the sunlight, due to tiny, gold stud accents. And well, I have to admit, I sort of want one for myself.
